Kuba, Gonchar questions must be answered soon

For the Ottawa Senators and Erik Karlsson, the serious discussions about what he’s worth won’t happen until well after the free-agent frenzy in early July. That’s about the same time as the NHL and the players’ association will be rolling up their sleeves to reach an agreement on how to fairly divide up the league’s revenues.

For the Ottawa Senators and Erik Karlsson, the serious discussions about what he’s worth won’t happen until well after the free-agent frenzy in early July. That’s about the same time as the NHL and the players’ association will be rolling up their sleeves to reach an agreement on how to fairly divide up the league’s revenues.

While all that negotiating nastiness is on the backburner, Senators general manager Bryan Murray is facing some rather pivotal decisions in the next few weeks about how to surround his marquee blue-liner.

Do you adopt the if-it’s-not-broken-don’t-fix-it model or gamble that the grass will be greener with a high-profile new face or two?

The Senators must decide whether to re-sign pending unrestricted free agent Filip Kuba, who delivered an impressive comeback season in 2011-12, serving as Karlsson’s defence partner and safety valve.

At this point, there have been no discussions between the Senators and Kuba’s agent, Rich Evans, but talks must begin soon

One Response to Kuba, Gonchar questions must be answered soon

  1. Brode says:

    In my mind Ottawa has to decide whether they want to keep Kuba and Gonchar or Karlsson. I think they should let Kuba and Gonchar go, so they can keep Karlsson because gonchar and kuba are both pretty close to retiring and karlsson can be the center piece for Ottawa’s future.
